Its really a good strategy of buying patents rather than buying the whole company. I guess that the patent war is far from over.
@Dylan, you could have included a brief description of the areas in which the patents could be applicable. This would complete the article for readers.
What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
